Includes Hard Case

What we say:

At A Glance:

The 552ce 12-String guitar reinforces Taylor's tradition of easy-playing double-course instruments with its lap-friendly Grand Concert body size, 12-fret-to-body neck join and shorter 24-7/8" scale length. The Mahogany back & sides paired with a Cedar top imparts a natural warmth that responds well to fingerstyle playaers and those with a lighter touch, while the smaller body produces awonderful focus and articulation that ensures your sound sits well in any mix.

Features We Love:

Construction

The 562ce has Mahogany back and sides to deliver a powerful, defined midrange, while the Cedar top imparts a warmth and clarity that makes this 12 string especially good for fingerpickers and those with a lighter touch. the clarity and definition imparted by the slightly smaller Grand Concert body size ensures this lighter touch isn't lost in the mix.

V-Class Bracing

Developed by Taylor’s Master Builder Andy Powers, this is an innovative new style of bracing. It tackles the issue of achieving sustain and tone without sacrificing volume. V-Class bracing allows the guitar’s top to move and vibrate in a more stable manner, resulting in more focus and response from the wood. This control means more volume and projection. The ‘V’ of the bracing travels the middle of the guitar, maintaining rigidity and lending sustain and resonance to your notes. V-Class bracing means a louder, richer sound with better intonation and response.

Expression System 2

This is widely recognised as one of the greatest acoustic pickup systems available. It translates every ounce of tone, detail and dynamic from your fingertips, strings and guitar wood. This gives the audience an accurate and fully realistic translation of your performance.

Pros:

  • Wood choice delivers clarity, definitiona nd warmth
  • Versatile Grand Concert body shape
  • Small body and 12-fret neck join make it comfortable in the lap
  • Particularly suited to lighter players and fingerpickers
